URGENT ACTION REQUIRED | MAJOR EXPORT OF RHINO CALVES FROM SA TO CHINA VIA THAILAND.

Image courtesy Daily Mail UK
This morning I got credible information about the imminent export of a large amount of rhino calves to China by Mafunyane (Marnus Pretorius) who is in the Brits area.

This is a wholesale export of our heritage! I have confirmed that permits have been issued to Mafunyane to export these calves to Thailand and assume that they will then be re-routed to China.


We need to ensure that there is accountability here - why are permits being issued for the export of such a large number of calves to China/Thailand and what is the purpose of this export.


What does the Rhino Working Group have to say about this. What does the DEA have to say about this and what does CITES have to say about this?


Are we now just going to allow our rhinos (our heritage to be exported) to be farmed for horn in China????


What is the NSPCA going to do about this? The stress that these small calves will be put under on such a long journey will surely lead to deaths as it has happened in the past.
You need to share this story worldwide to ensure that we get answers.

TRAVEL SOUTH AFRICA KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

Kruger Park’s size is 7,523 sq miles (19,485 (km²). Home to a variety of wild life including the big five: Elephant approximately 13,750 - Lion an estimated 1,750 - 1000 Leopards and 37,130 Buffalo. Unfortunately, the last recorded count for Black Rhino in Kruger was only 590, and this was before 2011, when a record 450 rhinos were slaughtered by poachers in all of South Africa. Thus, Kruger’s Rhino count must have dropped significantly since then. All of this can be attributed to inhabitants of countries like Vietnam, the end users, naively believing the horns have medicinal benefits. It is time that these little men “man up” on their own account and stop believing killing innocent animals will do the trick.
